  • To get a bit of peace and tranquillity in the bustle of Dubrovnik, do what the Franciscan friars do: come to the monastery and pharmacy inside the old city walls! A 14th century religious complex...

  • Such a wonderful calming environment. Very beautiful. Fabulous garden in the monastery and the pharmacy is still in use. Excellent value for money and very helpful and kind staff. Thank you
  • The church was nice but I really liked the monastery. The courtyard was really pretty and I couldn't stop taking pictures. There is a small museum inside. The entry is 40HRK and is part of Dubrovnik card
